All NJ Academic Awards

Each year, the Council honors New Jersey’s top community college students and their families during the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Day Celebration.

PTK Day is a day of celebration and recognition by our state legislators, college presidents and faculty advisors.

The event, held in Trenton, officially recognizes the members of the New Jersey All-State Academic Team, sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for community colleges, and the New Jersey Education Association.

Each year as part of this annual event, community college presidents raise nearly $1 million in scholarships from New Jersey’s senior institutions. These scholarships go to deserving community college students pursuing their bachelor’s degrees in New Jersey.

PTK Day is usually held on the first Thursday of May.
